JASPER® Acquires West Virginia Branch Distributorship

Jasper Engines & Transmissions is proud to announce the acquisition of Jasper Engines & Transmissions of South Charleston, West Virginia.

The branch originally opened in 1976 as an independent distributorship, selling JASPER quality remanufactured products to customers in West Virginia.  The branch moved to its present location in 1980 at 102 D Street in South Charleston.

West Virginia was JASPER’s last independently-owned distributorship.

“Our West Virginia customers can now take full advantage of several JASPER programs not afforded to them in the past,” said Zach Bawel, JASPER President.  “These include availability to Cooperative Advertising programs, our Preferred Installer programs, along with other Volume Discount programs that go with dealing directly with the factory.”

“In addition, the West Virginia branch Associates become owners of the company as part of JASPER’s Associate-Owned Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP),” Bawel added.  “This territory will continue to get great customer support from our outside sales representatives, branch operations, delivery drivers, and now additional support from the JASPER factory.”

Jasper Engines & Transmissions currently has 45 branch offices and distribution centers in 28 states.
